A micro SD card is a small, removable memory card that is becoming increasingly popular in today's technology. Commonly used in cell phones, MP3 players, portable media players and other modern handheld devices, micro SD cards can store various types of media such as photos, music and videos. How much a card can store depends on the size of the memory, which can reach 128 gigabytes (GB). Follow some specific instructions to transfer media from a computer to a micro SD card using either a memory card reader or USB cable.
